Fall has arrived early at First Watch. The award-winning Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch restaurant company today announced the debut of its new seasonal menu. Highlighting fall’s most-loved foods, such as pumpkin and butternut squash, the menu is available now through Sunday, Nov. 3.
“We take great pride in continuing to offer our guests fresh and seasonal dishes throughout the year,” said Chris Tomasso, chief marketing officer for First Watch. “These dishes have been extremely popular, and the fall ones will be no different. We know our guests are especially looking forward to the return of our signature fall favorite item – the Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast.”
In addition to all the traditional First Watch favorites, guests will find the following items at their local restaurant for a limited time:
Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast
Pumpkin Pancakes are back. Two fresh eggs cooked any style plus one of First Watch’s signature spiced Pumpkin Pancakes and Aidells’ grilled, all-natural Chicken Apple Sausage.
Roasted Butternut Squash Quinoa Bowl
A seasonal favorite, this protein-packed quinoa dish is mixed with house-roasted butternut squash, dried cranberries, all-natural white meat chicken breast and herbed goat cheese. Topped with candied walnuts and drizzled with balsamic dressing.
Butternut Squash Soup
Rich and creamy, this butternut squash soup is sweetened with carrot and a touch of nutmeg – a delicious addition to that perfect fall day.
First Watch’s fall seasonal menu items are available in all restaurants Sept. 9 through Nov. 3.
In addition to the launch of the fall menu, First Watch announced it has added two quinoa dishes to its regular menu. First Watch introduced its Pesto Chicken Quinoa Bowl in January as a limited-time offering. Due to its popularity, the dish remained on the spring menu and was followed in the summer by the Cherry Chicken Quinoa Bowl. These two dishes now join First Watch’s regular lineup of Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch offerings:
Pesto Chicken Quinoa Bowl
This protein-packed quinoa dish is mixed with kale, shredded carrots and house-roasted tomatoes. Topped with grilled all-natural lemon chicken breast, basil pesto sauce, feta crumbles and fresh herbs.
Cherry Chicken Quinoa Bowl
First introduced on the summer menu, this protein-packed quinoa dish is tossed with house-roasted zucchini, dried cherries, all-natural white meat chicken breast and herbed goat cheese. Topped with sliced almonds, fresh herbs and drizzled with balsamic dressing.
First Watch serves its entire menu seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The restaurant also offers guests complimentary newspapers and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
